The inconvenience of taking off your shoes while going through airport security may soon be over.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano predicted yesterday that passengers will eventually be able to keep their shoes on while going through the screening process.

Napolitano says the Transportation Security Administration is moving toward an intelligence and risk-based approach to screening.

Napolitano said lifting the 3-ounce restriction on liquids in carry-ons will likely be one of the last changes travelers will see.
